Richard Kreimer is homeless. He goes to public places, makes himself sufficiently obnoxious that he gets thrown out, and then sues on his rights. Wally and I have covered this at Overlawyered through the years, Mar. 2005, Feb. 2006, Dec. 2006, Aug. 2008. The Star-Ledger rediscovers the story (via ABAJ). Kreimer's own lawyer says "It's become kind of like a sting operation, where he's waiting for someone to violate his rights...This is a way for him to make money." Part of the problem is that the New Jersey Supreme Court has forbidden anti-loitering laws, a rebuke to James Q. Wilson's "broken windows" theory.
